Mo's Challenge #195

So Krafty!

Kim is our hostess for this week, and she wants us to us to use Kraft card stock in our creations! I've colored on Kraft with Prismacolor pencils before, and I love the look,  but I much prefer the speed of my Copics for coloring. I decided to use the Kraft for my card body instead of coloring an image on Kraft. I used it to make the daisies, too. I used regular brads for the centers and dotted them using a Spica pen and Multiliner.

I made this card to welcome a new couple to our rural neighborhood.

Images: "Tall Houses" (a set of three) from Mo's Digital Pencil, SU! stamped sentiment (I used the 'omitting' technique, as the stamp said "Welcome Baby")

Tools: Copics, Spica and Multiliner pens, Prismacolor pencil, MS Fence, Leaf, and Daisy punches, Nellie Snellen leaf embosser, Black marker

Papers: SU! Reds, Gable Green, and Kraft CS, Neenah white

Now it's your turn to show us your wonderful creations using at least one of Mo's great images!

Mo's Challenge #194


 Tine is our hostess for Mo's Challenge this week, and she wants us to use turquoise on our cards and
projects. That was easy for me as I love to use turquoise. I think it goes well with so many other colors!

I love this image! I don't know what it is about her that appeals so much to me, but I always love working with her, and I always seem to make her a red-head!

Inside: "Sending you a bucketful of sunshine!"

Images: "Maggie" from Mo's Digital Pencil, Stamped sentiment from PrintWorks

Tools: Copics, White gel pen, Prismacolor pencil, Cuttlebug with die, Oval punches.

Papers: SU! Turquoise and Apricot, Recollections gingham DP, Digital star DP, Neenah white

Embellishments: Brads


This card uses another of my favorite images! I just love the look on this baby's face! This card doesn't have any turquoise on it, but aqua is a close cousin!

Image: "Spit Happens" from Mo's Digital Pencil, Digital sentiment

Tools: Copics, MS Lace border punch

Papers: SU! Soft Sky and Daffodil, Neenah white, MS DP

Embellishments: Grosgrain ribbon, Flowers, Mini brads

Mo's Challenge #193

Celebrating Love!

Oops! Time got away from me, and I'm very late in posting my card for this week's Challenge!
My younger sister is visiting from Dallas, so there have been a lot of family activities to occupy my thoughts and time.


Anja is our hostess for this week, and she has chosen the theme of  "Love" for Mo's Challenge.

This card is one of three that I made for our daughter-in-law to choose from for a wedding she and our son were  attending.  Mo has images of three wedding couples, so I used a different one on each card.

Tools: Copics, Cuttlebug with Anna Griffin embossing folder and Nestibilities die, Fiskar's punch

Papers: SU! Lavender and Gable Green, Neenah whit, PTI white

Embellishments: Satin ribbon, Roses from WOC

Please join us in Mo's Challenge this week to celebrate love! Just follow the theme making a card or project using at least one of Mo's fabulous images and enter for a chance to win a $5.00 gift certificate from Mo's Digital Pencil!

Always so happy when you visit!

Mo's Challenge #192

'F' is For.......
  Mo's Challenge this week is to make a card or project using at least one of Mo's great images with a theme or element that begins with an 'F'.

My 'F' is for formal, but it could also be for frame,  flourish, or flowers!
Our daughter-in-law needed a card for a wedding she and our son were attending. I made three different cards using Mo's three wedding couple images so that she could choose the one she liked.
 The one above is the one she chose!

Tools: Copics, Gold Metallic pen, Spica pens, Cuttlebug with Embossing folder and Marianne swirl die, Glue dots

Papers: Neenah white, PTI white, Gold metallic CS

Embellishments: Flowers from WOC, Tiny pearl cabochons.


Here's another, and I'll show you the the third one next week!

I used Core'dination paper and my new Anna Griffin embossing folder for the background. It was lightly sanded to reveal the under-lying color. I'd never used this paper before, and I really like the effect.

Inside: "May your hearts still be dancing long after the music has stopped."

Image: "Bride and Groom (Dancing)" from Mo's Digital Pencil, Computer-generated sentiment

Tools: Copics, Cuttlebug with Anna Griffin embossing folder, Nestibilities ovals, and Cheery Lynn flourish corner dies, Nellie Snellen Rose Leaf embossing punch set, Sanding block

Papers: SU! Rose Romance and Garden Green, Neenah white, Core'dinations CS

Embellishments: Flowers from WOC
